Look who’s back… the girls from Homespun With Love!!!! We are so excited to have been asked back again this year as Design Dazzle Summer Camp Counselors!
Thank you so much for having us back again for another round of Summer fun ideas!Today we are sharing a big part of our daily Summertime life… and it may be true for many of you as well…WATERMELON!!!
Only this time we are not eating the watermelon, (although it does smell good enough to…so make sure to teach the little ones…no eating this watermelon!)
So let’s get the Summer fun activities started with this Happy Summer Watermelon Play Dough!
Watermelon Play Dough Recipe
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon cream of tarter
1 cup water
food coloring (just add until you get the desired color)
• mix all of the ingredients together in a sauce pan except for the extract/oil.
• place on medium high heat on the stove
• stir frequently until the dough starts pulling away from the sides of the pan.
• remove from the stove.
• let dough cool enough to handle, then knead the dough, adding several drops of watermelon extract/ oil. We believe a fragrance oil works best.
• place it in an airtight container.
How do you like to serve up your Summertime watermelon ?
Sliced into wedges…. fun watermelon balls? Yum!!!
Keep your watermelon play dough fresh as can be in a glass jar and make up a few to give to some friends so they can have a Happy Summer too!
We love these Happy Summer watermelon hang tags from Katarina’s Paperie.
We hope we have inspired you this Summer to make up a big, fun, juicy batch of Happy Summer Watermelon Play Dough!!!
Thank you once again Design Dazzle for having us back again this year!!!
